15 Apps Every Student Needs To Download If You Haven’t Already
If you’re a student, you should definitely think about downloading these apps right now. Some you might already have, some will have you questioning how you ever lived without them.
1. Oxford Dictionary.
The Oxford Dictionary of English is one of the world’s most popular reference apps as it contains every word in the English language, along with their meanings. This app is great for university students as it will help them widen their vocabulary. Think about it – you’d no longer spend those extra pesky minutes thinking about another word for “therefore” in your assignments.
2. Pokémon GO.
Pokémon Go is an augmented reality app that grew significantly in popularity within just a few months of its release. It is now one of the most downloaded apps in the world, surpassing even “Candy Crush Saga,” the well-known game. Poémon Go is a great way for students to get out of their house during study breaks, and gives them an excuse to explore the world around them whilst getting fit.
Still as obsessed with Pokemon Go as I was when it came out 😂👌🏼

If you don’t have Snapchat already, you must either hate taking selfies or live under a rock. Snapchat’s main focus is photo sharing and editing. Most people use this app to take selfies with funny filters, but you can create some pretty stunning art too.
Sometimes you need a guaranteed way to watch your favourite shows, especially when one of your flatmates happens to be hogging the television. Netflix is a streaming service that lets you watch anything you want to for less than £8 a month. The best part about it is that it can be downloaded to any device.
Getting the Netflix app on my phone was the best choice I've ever made.👌🏼

If you are one who enjoys DIY or crafts, then Pinterest is the perfect app for you. Not only is it fun to look at the content and get innovative ideas on decor, but it’s also fun to find ways that will make your life easier with hacks. Who knows, you might even be #pinspired to try one of those cool recipes one day (even though you’re not a great cook).
now that i have the app on my phone i'm even more obsessed with pinterest oops

Evernote has proven to be one of the most popular apps for uni students. Being a note-taking application with many other organisational features, students use Evernote to help with their studies and even manage entire writing projects. It’s definitely worth downloading this app and trying it out for yourself.
7. 750 Words.
Do you want to start writing a certain amount each day? 750 Words is just the app for you. To put it into the simplest terms, this app focuses on helping you form the habit of writing every single day. It’ll make you feel very accomplished. By learning this skill, you will be able to knock out assignments much faster and have more time for yourself. And when it comes to dissertation time, you’ll have that bad boy written in no time!
Being bilingual is becoming more in-demand in the workplace every year, and it’s likely that you’ve forgotten all the GCSE language vocab you learned all those years ago. Duolingo is an app that allows you to learn a second language by focusing on short quizzes and games. Unlike Rosetta Stone, Duolingo is absolutely free.
Pacifica is an app that helps you reduce your stress. It has many features such as colouring pages, a journal, and relaxing sounds to listen to as well. University is partly a wonderful experience and partly a complete stress overload. This app helps you deal with the latter.
The Pacifica app has guided me to an eye opening experience. Highly recommended!

10. My Fitness Pal.
Taking care of your health and wellbeing is a big part of being on your own. Do you want to find a good way to get your blood rushing but you just can’t seem to find a good time to get active? My Fitness Pal is an app that tracks all of your physical activity and tracks down how many calories you burn on average. You can even add the items you eat in one day for the app to calculate your daily calorie intake.
11. Circle of 6.
One of the best and worst parts of going to uni is that you are on your own for the first time in your life. You are responsible for yourself, your money, and – most importantly – your safety. Circle of 6 is an app that will help keep you safe. Simply add 6 friends, and the app will connect you all to one group. Now, whenever you want to escape from a horrible date, or are even worried about someone who has been following you back to your house, you have an app that will send out an “SOS” message at the press of a button.
I think everyone should download the app Circle of 6. You really never know.

12. Level Money.
Life is all about money, and money is all about budgeting. Level Money is an app that can connect to your bank account and will help you create a budget based on your funds. This way, you won’t find yourself to be short when that dreadful time comes to pay rent or utility bills.
Like everyone else, you probably want financial stability for the future. Well, Digit is the perfect app for this. You connect it to your bank account and just go about with your life. It then analyses your spending habits and takes out small amounts of money and saves it for you. This is brilliant as you will rarely, if ever, miss the money that it puts away for you, and it’ll be incredibly helpful for the future.
Do you have a wardrobe full of old clothes that you want to get rid of? Why not earn a few extra pounds at the same time! letgo is an app that allows to you instantly post your unwanted possessions on the web for sale. All you have to do is take a picture, upload it, and wait for potential buyers.
As I’ve said, money is easy to lose control of when you’re at uni by yourself. One night you’re eating out at your favourite restaurant, and the next you’re barely surviving on a bowl of cold ramen noodles. Groupon is an app that will produce coupons and deals for just about everything. All you have to do is download the free app and enjoy the savings!
Whoever invented groupon you're a lifesaver & i love u
